Title: The Comparability of Selected State-County Wages and Benefits
Authors: Kamikawa, Ray

Abstract: Th;s paper serves the dual purpose of partially fulfilling this writer's requirements for the University of Hawaii Senior Honors program and for providing a useful study on one narrow aspect of Hawaii State-County Government costs for the Governor's ad hoc Commission on Operations, Revenues, and Expenditures (CORE). The requirements and needs for both purposes conflicted at times, and in this regard, the needs of CORE took precedence over the Honors' requirements. A major conflict arose on choosing between a theoretical or empirical approach to the subject of this study. A Senior Honors Thesis is. usually written with a preponderance of theory. CORE's need, on the other hand, required a more empirically oriented.study to help fulfill its mandate. This paper, then, puts heavier emphasis on empirical observations although the theory will provide a basic frame of organization.
